Extensive Demand of Heparin Exists Owing to Rise in Venous Thromboembolism
The heparin market in Europe is mainly driven due to a rising number of coagulation disorders in the form of venous thromboembolism (VTE). These diseases cause nearly half a million deaths worldwide in various regions every year, a number which is even greater than highway accidents, cancer, AIDS, and other deadly diseases. The increasing production of heparin in leading European countries has also driven the market substantially. This is mainly because of several tainted heparin products imported from China and other countries, which has forced for European countries to manufacture their own heparin products.
Heparin supplies contaminated with allergic substances were also found in several European nations, leading to the implementation of strict regulations regarding the use of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). In this way, the heparin market in Europe has witnessed widespread development of crude and API heparin, consequently pushing the market.
Use of Alternatives Hinders Heparin Market’s Growth
However, extensive availability of alternative anticoagulants such as warfarin, coumarins, and oral anticoagulants is negatively impacting growth in the global Europe heparin market. Several other alternatives are used such as dabigatran, apixaban, and rivaroxaban, which are also expected to reduce the sales of heparin-based products, thereby negatively affecting the market’s growth. Utilization of such anticoagulant alternatives is due to rising concerns existing among consumers, wherein they might get their hands onto contaminated heparin derived from animals.
Expiry dates of most heparin products are quite short, which also has caused consumers to deviate towards utilizing alternatives having longer shelf lives. Nevertheless, extensive efforts are being taken by major players in the market to produce contaminant-free heparin products having that remain fresh for a considerably long duration. Doing this is expected to greatly offset the restraints.
